Memorial Day and Contest


Let's remember during these holidays --  our men and women who fight for our right to pray and to live the way we choose will come home safely.

Monuments are reminders not to forget the hard lessons of the past. We can forgive our enemys and keep some terrific challenges from disappearing into the foggy past without reliving terrible times, and maybe another generation will see these things and remember to find a better way.
